I’m looking for no-code model development

The Blankly workflow is centered around streamlining the development process for algorithmic models, from writing the code itself to backtesting and finally to deployment. If coding isn’t up your alley, then Trality is easy to get started with, where you can build trading bots by dragging and dropping indicators and strategies.

I want access to other models and strategies I can deploy myself

As you get started with Blankly, we provide a library of base models to help you onboard. Once you get the hang of things, you can create a model and start generating alpha in just six lines of code. However, to protect user’s proprietary models, users do not have access to models built by others through the Blankly Platform. If you are looking to deploy someone else’s model rather than build your own, check out Quantconnect, where you can pay to license models in a marketplace.

I want to build models from the ground up

With the Blankly Package and the Blankly Platform, we’ve got your back. With easy onboarding, develop a model and start generating alpha in just six lines of code. Blankly’s infrastructure makes it easy to backtest, iterate on, and deploy your model, so you can go from ideation to profit without dealing with the hassles of traditional algorithm development.

I need a great backtesting experience

Blankly understands that the backtesting is a crucial part of the model development process, and we are here to make it as painless as possible. Using data from various brokerages, we let you test your model with historical data, store your backtest logs, and then compare with your previous backtests to validate progress. That’s why hundreds of developers choose Blankly to streamline their backtests.

I want a platform that unites my developer team

With a project that has as many loose ends as an algorithmic trading model, a shared repository just is not enough. Blankly allows teams to collaborate together on projects, from comparing backtests to model monitoring. We take care of all the hassle of team management, and let you all work on crafting your secret source.
